Second 2nd Place in Round Two

Adding to our original Redline Time Attack schedule, the team decided to take a last-minute trip to Arizona for Round 2 at Firebird International Raceway.  The trip paid off with a 2nd Place in the FWD- Street Tire Class.  The car had greatly improved pace from round 1.

With rain storms Saturday, practice number one was canceled.  So we had little practice for the main event.  But the improvements made after our debut race, really showed some progress in the development of our #11 GReddy tC on the Sunday.  Still utilizing our Tuner Turbo Kit on the stock Scion 2AR engine, the upgraded OS Giken clutch and flywheel gave more reliability for the 300whp worth of boost.  While the lightened carbon hood and hatch, along with the APR front splitter and GT wing gave more stability for driver Takeshi Aizawa.  Allowing Takeshi to run a respectable 1:10.873 best lap, only 1.374 sec behind 1st.   The team is really looking forward to Rd.3 in Fontana on May 28-29th.
